The Nordic Rocks program is funded by the Share Winter Foundation and was developed to introduce a new generation of children in grades K-4 to the excitement found in the sport of cross country skiing. Nordic Rocks provides elementary school students, with an opportunity to experience nordic skiing during the school day, with their teachers and classmates, and to learn the health and lifestyle benefits associated with exercise and outdoor fun.
NENSA will assist each new Nordic Rocks school with a skiing curriculum and resources, teaching support, and the opportunity to apply for one of three $500 grants to go towards equipment. Schools enrolling in Nordic Rocks will be able to purchase special Nordic Rocks equipment at discounted prices.
The curriculum is easy to follow and offers teachers learning ideas with both outdoor and indoor activities. The equipment is easy to use, store, and maintain. The equipment includes cross county skis with easy to use step-in bindings.
